Skin Coloring Tutorial by BloodlineV Skin Coloring Tutorial by BloodlineV
This is how I color skin in my anime styled drawings. :iconadachimurdersplz:
I dunno if this'll help anyone but imma upload it anyway.

I don't feel that verbal today so there's probably tons of typos and such.
I know that many had hoped a drawing tutorial not a coloring tutorial, but asdfgh these things take so much time to make, anatomy tutorials even more, so I can't really promise when I'll get one done.

I need advice, so im drawin kurumi tokisaki and she is a very pale character. I tried sampling skin tones off of other pictures of her to be accurate but when i use them they dont look right she looks like she has a really abnormal skin color how can i get better skin tones?

I desperately need your help, I've accidentally changed the settings for my blur tool and I can't get correct them back to the way I had them previously, would be so kind as to possibly tell me your settings for your blur tool? I'm asking you specifically because your shade style is closest to my own. Your help would be extremely appreciated. :)

Okay here are my settings: (the names for these might vary depending on the version of SAI you're using)
Density: 100
Blending: 100
Dilution: 100
Persistence: 80
Smoothing Prs: 100

I change these occasionally myself so I don't if you find them helpful or not.

Sai is not letting me color the skin layer when I put the skin layer underneath the lineart layer. :/ how did you get it to work that way ? I'm afraid if i do what I usually do and put the skin layer above the lineart layer this method won't work because I'd have to put the skin layer on the "multiply" setting to be able to see the lineart underneath the color
